5 brilliant new beauty buys launching in March

By Zara Kenyon, 2 March, 2016

It’s March. How on earth did that happen, huh? It’s frightening how fast this year is whizzing by, but a bevy of new beauty launches is offering some reprieve.

The likes of Bobbi Brown, Rimmel London and bareMinerals are ready to push your routine into spring with sheer textures, fresh fragrances and sumptuous ingredients that ward off the winter dullness. Here are five buys to look out for…

1. Bobbi Brown Nude Finish Tinted Moisturiser SPF 15, £29.50

Nude for all!

We’ve gone full circle, from tinted moisturiser, to BB cream, to CC cream, to DD cream, and right back to the no-nonsense tinted moisturiser again. Bobbi Brown is famed for its supreme complexion perfecting, and this base looks to hold up the reputation by offering sheer, creamy coverage that knocks out uneven tones. Your beach-bound face will love it.

2. Rimmel London Super Gel Nail Polish, £5.99

Shine bright with 'Blue Babe' and a cool pool – the perfect summer daze! #GELPOWER #RimmelLondonAU

Because in-salon gel manicures are pricey and can damage fragile beds, we’re thrilled that Rimmel is launching a gel-like polish you can slick on while watching TV. The colour lasts for up to two weeks, comes off with your usual nail varnish remover (so easy!), and gives you the gloss and plumpness of an expert job. Plus, there are 20 shades.

3. Philip Kingsley Limited Edition Elderflower and Rhubard Elasticizer, £57.96 for 1000ml

Fans of the cult classic Elasticizer are going to love this limited edition launch: a 1000ml bottle of the pre-shampoo treatment, complete with the new, fresh scent of elderflower and rhubarb. For the uninitiated, this softening cream should be worked into wet mid-lengths, left for 20 minutes, then rinsed with shampoo for a dose of moisture, gloss and smoother tips.

4. bareMinerals bareSkin Sheer Sun Serum Bronzer, £25

bareMinerals knows what we like. Hot on the heels of the serum foundation and serum concealer comes the new serum bronzer, a base for the most sun-kissed of skin. The ultra-blendable texture can be buffed wherever the sun would naturally hit – forehead, bridge of the nose and tops of cheeks – to nail some beachy warmth.

5. Marc Jacobs Daisy Dream Blush Eau de Toilette, £54 for 50ml

You make me blush 💕 Introducing the new Marc Jacobs Daisy Blush Limited Editions.

Marc Jacobs Daisy has another sister! Dream Blush is the latest must-buy for Daisy fragrance fans, that lends a twist of rose and violet leaves to the airy floral scent. Unequivocally pretty in every sense – from the blend of notes to the petal-topped flacon – it’s one to spritz in the run-up to spring.

Sunny days are coming, promise!
